Get Ahead: Use These #5 Ways of Getting Your New Year Started Right (Before & After The New Years!)


The New Year is here now fairly quickly. Are you ready?


There's an inevitable panic that sets in after the holidays. We've been so rushed with shopping, family, and a busy social whirl, is it any surprise we feel unprepared for the year to come? Suddenly everyone is talking about their great grand goals, and you still haven't quite figured out how to close out the last year.


It's a good thing starting your New Year right is reasonably straightforward. In fact, using these five tips, you'll feel prepared in no time.


Take a Hard Look Back...

It's not often that you're encouraged to stare in the rearview mirror. On the other hand, there comes a time when looking back is absolutely necessary. This is one of those times. Here's where you want to review your last year. What did you accomplish? What feels unfinished? Where were the improvements? What held you back? What are the regrets you carry? What do you feel especially proud of?




Finish Things...

What haven't you closed out yet? It's time to clear the decks for the new year. The good news is you might not have to finish everything. Carefully examine these old projects. Are there any things you could delegate? What about projects you really no longer need at all? It's ok to let go of things that are no longer important.


Add in a Dose of Realism...

Look at the goals you made last year. Were they reasonable? What about the things you want to do this coming year? It might be time to scale back into the realm of possibilities. You can start by breaking down the big crazy things into smaller steps you actually can accomplish.


What's Your Focus?

Look again at your goals. Are they all over the place? Find the common denominator (if there is one). If not, it's time to figure out what you're really after. Having substantial focus makes you much more likely to accomplish what you set out to do. Knowing this focus before the year begins is really half the battle.


Take Care of You...

This one should go without saying. If you're not healthy, you're not going to get anything done at all. Make yourself a priority before the year begins, setting up healthy habits, so you have the energy to do what you need to when the time comes.


If you've followed these steps, then you're the one feeling prepared for the New Year, and it's the rest of the world who will be looking at your feeling envious at your calm as you enter into your best year ever. Yaaaaayyyy, you!
